EXCLUSIVE: 3 Residents Sue Thompson Planning & Zoning Boards, Hamaspik Over Sleep Away Camp Permit
Three Rock Hill residents on Friday filed an Article 78 action in State Supreme Court/ Sullivan County alleging that the Town of Thompson Planning Board's action last month to grant a permit for Hamaspik Resort to be used as a sleep away camp was "illegal, arbitrary and capricious."
The Town of Thompson Zoning Board is also a defendant.
The facility - on the site of the former Sullivan hotel (The Ramada Inn) that was previously owned by the Resnick Group - was sold to the New York State Hamaspik Association (NYSHA) in December 2020, as reported exclusively by this media outlet.
The SullivanTimes Friday reached out to to Steven M. Mogel, the plaintiffs' attorney, as well as
Meyer Worthheimer, founder and executive director of NYSHA, for comment on the suit.
